9781596680081: Couture Crochet Workshop

A review of crochet standards, chart reading, and technique is combined in this guide with a course on sizing crocheted garments to fit like a glove—all in the interest of encouraging crocheters to try their hand at lace fashions that look as though they came straight off a ready-to-wear runway. Patterns include a metallic ribbon Chanel-style jacket, a lace shift dress with a mohair lace camisole, a cowl-neck trapeze tunic, and a chevron wedding dress with matching fingerless gloves. Those who want a gorgeous look in a smaller project will revel in the striking designs for hats, jewelry, and spangled evening bags. Explanations of accurate measuring, silhouettes, circular construction, shell and chevron stitches, and custom detailing demystify the more advanced designs, and beautiful photographs showcase all the finished pieces.

"An absolute 'must have' for anyone wanting to know more about crocheting in general or considering going into garment design."  —BellaOnline Crochet Editor

"A killer section on pattern-making. . . . There's also much good info about the small details of how garments are constructed so they hang well on the body."  —Craftypod.com

"[Chin is] the Eddie van Halen of frumpy sweater making."  —MSNBC

"Merges Lily's modern fashion sense along with her keen pattern-making skills to help the rest of us understand the importance of fit. This is a must-have book for any crochet lover."  —Craft magazine
